sunset boulevard in los angeles it looks like election posters. the trade magazines, variety, hollywood reporter they are completely full of advertisements telling you to vote for it. and also momentum is a huge thing. movies coming out now in january, they probably were made with the open they would be oscar caliber, but the studio is like these are terrible, we peer going to dump them in january. >> jennifer: right. last quick question, what was the worst political movie of the year? >> "abraham vampire slayer." it was so serious about something that was so clearly ridiculous.
4:01 pm
>> jennifer: it was just wrong. that is hybrid vigor that does not work. all right. brett thank you so much for joining us. and thank you all for joining us here in "the war room." we'll see you back here on month. go see a movie. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] into welcome to "the young turks." osama bin laden was shot in the head. should we release them? i don't know. >> obama: photos of someone being shot in the head floating around. >> cenk: let 'em go, let 'em go. and historic as usual, global warming all over the united states and now it's costing business in mississippi. and then we have a person who is an activist for the dream act and then all of a sudden her mother gets picked up by the authorities. get a look at this reaction.
4:02 pm
[ sobbing ] >> cenk: she's going to be on the show today. and then finally here we go again, another republican talking about legitimate rape. >> it is true. we tell couples all the time who are having trouble consuming because of the woman not ovulating, just relax. >> cenk: now wait until you find out the number of women who get pregnant because of rape in america. it's a stunning number. this is a stunning show. go time. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> cenk: all right we got some good news about afghanistan, and the good news is we're leaving. president obama met with hamid
4:03 pm
karzai, the leader of afghanistan. >> the forces i have ordered to afghanistan have served with honor. they've completed their mission and as promised will return home. the transition is well under way, and soon nearly 90% of a begans will livea--afghans will live in areas where afghan forces have control of the security. by the end of next year, 2014, the transition will be complete. afghans will have full responsibility for their security, and this war will come to a responsible end. >> cenk: that would be fantastic. now, i'm not entirely confident of the afghan forces protecting afghanistan, but that is their business, not our business. it appears that problem president
4:04 pm
obama is going to expedite the number of troops we have leaving quicker, leaving in greater numbers, and when we hit 2014, when we're supposed to leave only a few troops behind, it appears he's going to follow through on that. as with everyone in the government, i will believe it when i see it, but this is definitely good news today. we move to the issue of bin laden's picture. we did operation geronimo. i believe there is a movie about. everyone knows we shot him. we shot him in the head. there are photos of bin laden dead, but they won't release them. let's see where president why president obama won't release them. >> why don't you release them? >> obama: we discussed this
4:05 pm
internally. it's important to make sure that graphic photos of someone being shot in the head floating around as an incitement to additional violence, a propaganda tool. that's not who we are. >> cenk: but we killed him. that is who we are. he killed 3,000 people of our guys. we have every right. i think it's ridiculous. in a rare agreement with john fitton. listen to him on cnn. >> the law requires the release of this information and it's more important to follow our laws that it gives access to information to what our government is doing than to say that we're not going to allow the american people know what the government is doing because
4:06 pm
it will upset the terrorists. we should follow the law and blame the terrorist it is they do anything inappropriate. but we should not throw out the laws because the terrorists don't like the result as soon. >> cenk: i can't believe i'm going to say i agree. three panel judges were asked they said they have not decided but it doesn't look good on initial looking into the case. quote they're telling us it is a risk that americans will die if we release these documents. when the government tells us that this is likely to lead to death, shouldn't we defer to that even more when they say that it will result in the release of secret information? no you're a judge. your job is not to defer to the executive branch, if they say so, it must be true. this is how they're keeping so many people secret from people
4:07 pm
they're supposed to be representing. that's us the american people. lindsey moran a former agent with the central intelligence agency, and her book is called "my life as a spy." first on releasing the pictures. what is your sense here? did you get a sense that terrorists that we killed, we're going to be attacked more or people in the field would be exposed to month danger? >> certainly there is that possibility, that risk exists. but what i find ironic about this situation is the government claiming this is classified information and would put americans at risk. at the same time two hollywood filmmakers were given unprecedented access to the c.i.a. basically made an an infomercial about c.i.a.
4:08 pm
interrogation techniques. i think "zero dark thirty" is a very interesting movie but it has disturbing scenes of torturing detainees. now i find it laughable that there is a sudden claim that documentary photos of bin laden are some how classified and the american public doesn't have a right to see them. >> cenk: that's a great point. i want to talk about something now that you mentioned it. the terrorists are plenty. i'm worried about the people in the middle who have not gone in either direction and have not decided to become terrorists. are they more likely to become a terrorist if they see pictures of bin laden dead after they know he's already dead?
4:09 pm
>> i think if you watch "zero dark thirty," again it's not a documentary but its presented on almost as much, it might be upsetting for those in the middle who might have sympathy towards extremist groups. i think that will be more upsetting to them than these photos of bin laden. we know he was killed. we all know how he was killed. there's no secret. >> cenk: then it leads to the drone strikes. to me, especially, and i like to distinguish here not all drone strikes are bad but especially when we do signature strikes when we don't know who we're killing, i find that amazing. we've done seven in two weeks. the most recent, 11 in pakistan. when we accidently kill the wrong people, aren't their whole families and neighborhoods and communities much more likely to sign up to fight us?
4:10 pm
doesn't that incite terrorism to fight against us a lot more than a picture would? >> certainly. i'm actually in favor of targeted drone strikes when they're done right because the bottom line we're fighting the bad guys. you can't be a human rights purist when you're in the business of intelligence or trying to take out terrorists. but there are definitely problems with the drone strikes and certainly this collateral damage with what we call collateral damage is to other people the loss of their families and their children, and that is going to create a lot more animosity toward the united states than the release of photos of either bin laden or his funeral you know, and ostensibly somber occasion and feel as the american public we should see--if all that information was already released to two hollywood filmmakers you
4:11 pm
can't make the argument that we the american people cannot see that. >> cenk: i love it. lindsay moran author, thank you for joining us. i appreciate it. >> thanks. >> cenk: when we come back here we go again. another republican congressman talking about how todd aiken the famous infamous legitimate rape comment might have actually been right. >> all that adrenaline company cause you not to ovulate. so he was partially right wasn't he. like verse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now. >> she gets the comedians laughing... >> that's hilarious! >> ...and the thinkers thinking. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> you would rather deal with ahmadinejad then me. >> absolutely! >> and so would mitt romeny. >> she's joy behar. >> and the best part is that current will let me say
4:12 pm
anything. what the hell were they thinking? >> only on current tv.

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> cenk: welcome back to "the young turks." we have some interesting topics for you. we have the rowdy crowd here, ana kasparian, michael shure jayar jackson and hemela, it's great to have you here. >> thank you. >> do you remember when todd aiken said that women who are
4:15 pm
raped can't get pregnant because the body shuts itself down. >> former congressman. >> yes. now there is a representative in georgia who said it's only partially fault. >> he's partly right. i'm an obgyn doctor, i've been an obyn doctor for a long time. it's partially true. we tell couples all the time where the woman is having a hard time conceiving, because they're not ovulating. we tell them just relax don't be so tense and up tight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to off late.
4:16 pm
>> cenk: now is there something to adrenaline will cause women not to ovulate. >> all women are different. there are women who want so much to conceive that, they will stress so much about it, that they will be unable to ovulate. in each year there are 32,000 pregnancies caused by rape every year. >> how could an obgyn not realize that it not only can happen but happens all the time and it is more likely to happen michael, on the politics of
4:17 pm
this how dumb do you have to be to bring this back up. >> how could someone be such a moran as to ever align them ever with todd aiken. even if you want to say what he said don't say todd aiken was partly right. don't ever do that. it's a political lesson. i has done stupid things before. he has criticized rush limbaugh and then went on rush limbaugh's show and went on his show to apologize because we owe so much to him. >> to put the onous on the victim not the rapist. whether or not there is a nuggetsest of what they're saying that may be 20% true. >> cenk: i would not put it higher than 2%. >> where the stress can affect the ovulation. it doesn't determine whether a woman was raped or not.
4:18 pm
>> itit for people who want to put it on the woman who say she got pregnant when they're raped, and if she got pregnant she must have been relaxed and she must have wanted. >> cenk: why the hell are you saying it? >> it's putting it on the victim. and if your name starts with "gingra" at all, it's disaster. >> cenk: let's move on to the next one. >> it's hard to imagine that aurora shooter james holmes would have any admirers, but of course there are twisted people on the planet who think he's not a bad guy. one of them is 30-year-old missy benjamin and said she had a crush on him and created a facebook page that says
4:19 pm
compassion for all including james holmes, and it has 22 likes. can you imagine even one person? 22 blows my mind. missy benjamin said the following. when i first saw him i was physically attracted to him. i thought oh crap, i think he's cute. it seems crazy but i'm not crazy crazy. >> cenk: wrong again, bob, i think she might be crazy. she might have some issues. if her attraction to james holmes is weird but irrelevant, it doesn't mean that he's a good guy. it seems weird to be reaching out for love in all the wrong places. >> it happens all the time, sympathy for the devil. >> i do have a smidge of compassion for james holmes. >> cenk: wow you're outlibbing us. >> i think he's mentally ill. it has not been determined yet but if a person is a victim of what is going on in their head,
4:20 pm
and he must not be a rational person, and i don't have a lot of hate for him. >> but you're not talking like, when i saw him i was physically attracted to him. >> no. >> cenk: i'm not saying torture the guy or solitary confinement but i'm saying life without parole. >> she says even after everything i heard i can still say i can support this human being. he's not an animal. i don't think he's a bad guy. what he did was bad. >> cenk: no, no, no. you shoplift somewhere, i don't necessarily think you're a bad guy. you did something wrong and you can get beyond that. that's a mistake you can recover from. shooting and killing 12 people, it does mean that you're a bad guy. >> booby trapping your own apartment so when investigators came there, they too, would be
4:21 pm
killed. that transcends that level like cenk was saying, with shoplifters. >> you want to analyze where his brain went to. i think as far as the mentally ill thing to an extent, but it it's how people grew up, what they were told was right. whatever his brain did with it is what it did with it. rather than saying he's mentally ill, we got to put him in a padded room, there is a way with how we do it. >> cenk: that's rational. we should figure it out for the future. but at the same time i would like it put him in the padded room for the rest of his life so he doesn't do it again. he has already done it. it's over. you don't kill 12 people and then have a conversation about it. look people like misty and i know i'm analyzing from afar,
4:22 pm
but a lot of times when women who reach out the women who marry men in jail, etc. they like a captive audience. they like they can get his full attention. a lot of people think he's monster. they show a lot of love and they get a little love back. it's sad and that's part what have is happening, what is next. >> the oxygen network is coming out with a new reality show. it's is entitled "my baby's mamas." >> what's his name? >> shody lowe. >> shoddy lowe. >> you might be familiar with him. i'm not sure i know his name. he's the guy who did laffey taffy. so we've got a clip? >> yes we do. let's take a look at it.
4:23 pm
>> he might be a rapper, but here in atlanta he's known for having 11 kids. we have angela. aka chocolate. she's the fighter baby mama. tamara she's no drama baby mama. there is serena and liana aka pebbles. >> i have all these baby mamas. >> so understandably some don't like this reality show. they've changed to change dot organize so this doesn't air. the oxygen network has taken that trailer down from their website. in fact, we were able to obtain that trailer from lovely tease blog. so i don't know, maybe this petition is going to work. maybe they're going to take it down.
4:24 pm
>> cenk: they have done terrific work. they're the guys who took all the glenn beck's sponsors away. when color change comes for you you might be in trouble. thoughts guys. despicable show? are they right? >> call me jaded i don't think it's worse than anything else on tv right now. you have basketball wives. honey boo boo, you have jersey shore that go along with stereotypes of ethnicity. i don't know what about this show is so bad that it's making people come out in masses. >> no one is not being hired because their kid kid was not in a pageant show. or they're fighting on tv. new york jersey, atlanta, all of these. there is a level of respect, and level of stereotype. there is the grimy, and the
4:25 pm
semi. this keeps people thinking, this is the only black person i've seen in my life, because there are plenty of people who have never seen a black person in real life. that's what they're like. when they come across one i think he might have a ten different baby mamas. i saw shody lowe. >> they're actors, and ignorant people don't know it. and then we have the same fight every day we have to prove that everyone else isn't like this rapper actor who is on tv. >> i actually agree with jayar. i think a lot of these reality shows. it's not just this show that i have a problem with. first of all, it's our entire culture. obviously people love these shows. which is why they get high enough ratings to get renewed season after season. there is a cultural issue we have to address. but at the same time a lot of these chose exploit people who are in bad financial situations
4:26 pm
just like the family in "here comes honey boo boo." they're very poor, they put their entire lives on display and the country makes fun of them. that's what these shows are about. >> cenk: jayar has a point. when you see "jersey shore" nobody thinks that's how all italians are. >> it doesn't matter if they are harmful. no one is out hating the goombas of "jersey." but when you have a stereotype being played out then it becomes dangerous and it has to be held to a different bar. >> and it perpetuates in the mind of younger black kids that this is how their lives have to be. this is glamorous. you have 11 kid by 10 baby mama mamas. everybody is buying into it.
4:27 pm
>> it may make it hard for pebbles to get work later. >> cenk: i hear you guys. but one last thing. it's weird if you only leave out blacks because you do have the honey boo boos, the italians, all these people. the only group you can't do a goofy reality show about. >> don't we often have that whole discussion like "the hunger games." like the working class is fighting one another as opposed to fighting the higher ups. this is kind of an example of that. it's a nice distraction for people that are working all day. they're tired. i buy into it. i'm not trying to-- >> cenk: i watch "jersey shore." >> sometimes i watch "boards" whatever is on. it's a distraction, and may be a way for people who don't make as much money or have the same
4:28 pm
level of education as you and it makes you feel better. >> we can't regulate. we can fight back but. >> we're not trying to fight back, just don't support it. >> cenk: a young woman who is fighting begins the dream act has her mother grabbed by ice. and they arrest her. it's a harrowing story. we'll talk about it when we return. [ sobbing ] >> this is happening to families everywhere.
4:29 pm
4:30 pm
>> cenk: we're back here on "the young turks." erika andiola is the activist for the dream act. that's for young people who were brought into this country
4:31 pm
without documents but not because of anything they did. will they be allowed to stay longer. president obama, if you remember, took executive action that does allow them to stay, but it does not cover their pan. recently erika's mother was seized and she showed that on youtube. >> they took her for no reason. [ sobbing ] they asked me if my brother was related to me. i said yes he's my brother. they just took him. they just took him. they didn't want to tell me why. they said they needed to go because they were here illegally, that they shouldn't be here. this needs to stop. we need to do something. we need to stop separating families. this is unreal. >> cenk: so there is some dispute as to why they seized her mother, we'll get to that in a minute but i want to share some numbers for you.
4:32 pm
a record 410,000 people have been deported in 2012 alone. as president obama takes some executive action and reaches out to latinos he does continue to reach out and throw them out of the country. now, these are undocumented immigrants. keep that in mind to be fair. now spending for ice that's immigration and customs enforcement is $18 billion. that's what it was in 2012. that's more than all federal law enforcement agencies combined. which is a stunning fact. why are we spending this amount of resources to do this? it's weird especially when you consider the politics of it. we'll discuss that in a second. now back to erika andiola's mother, who--who has a different last name arreola. she had a prior record for removal stemming from 1998. last month her mother was stopped for speeding and
4:33 pm
fingerprinted by arizona police when she couldn't produce invitation allowing police to refer her to ice. let me open this up to everybody. now there are two sides of this. on the one hand the cops had legal grounds to get her. she is undocumented. on the other hand erika said the cops told her brother, we know who your sister is, you better not get involved in stuff like that. that seems clear if that's true. >> look, i under that there has to be a limit as far you allow into the country illegally. but the problem is arizona's law is mean spirited. it's intrusive. it's going after people who are hard-working people. there are other ways. if someone commits a crime and you find out that way that they're illegal and deported, it's sad but you can under that. but they're going after people who are being stopped for traffic violations, that's what i have a problem with.
4:34 pm
>> cenk: look, hermella and i did it the legal way. we're immigrants. we waited in line. we did the whole thing and did it the right way but it doesn't mean that i want our resources spent going after people like erica's moment. i got a hundred different ways to spend those resources. >> when we came up with the numbers of 410,000 deported, and ice and how much it trumps every law enforcement organization, you have to look at how many people are coming in, and the strain on the economy. if it's worth what they're doing, at least you can see where the argument comes if you're heartless and you don't care about breaking up families, you can see where it makes sense. i don't know the numbers but i doubt the numbers coming in and the strain on the economy is worth the amount of money that we're spending on this and breaking up families.
4:35 pm
>> undocumented immigrants pay into the payroll tax. >> and they contribute to sales taxes well. >> in terms they're the consumers that work there. >> michael, one thing about the politics that i really want to do before we run out of time, why. i know arizona and this is arizona, i get this. but 410,000 people across the country. >> it has to be focused on arizona, not because this is where the story is but this is what is being perpetuateed around the country, and other legislatures are looking at what they did. a lot of people think the family being broken up is a false argument because people who immigrate from another country are, indeed, breaking up a family. they're leaving people behind i would imagine in the large percentages of the cases. but
4:36 pm
what the government has to focus on is a more humane way of doing it. this is not the way to do it, this is not the popular way to do it. and what we learned from this last election it doesn't work in a big way. the latino vote is a growing vote. you are going to have people looking at this who are not the jan brewers of the united states. >> quickly going back to the economy, there is always this emphasis how supposedly undocumented immigrants are sucking our resources dry. you look at big farming towns for example, in alabama. the farmers were in a world of trouble because they could not find american workers to man their farms. >> cenk: they do it in different states and they get the undocumented immigrants out and then they panic and bring them back in. >> that's bush's migrant work policy. >> cenk: disaster. >> cenk: when we come back, speaking of disasters a lot of employers are a saying because
4:37 pm
of obama-care i have to cut your hours. >> gary durdet. >> it has had a huge effect on me and everybody i work with. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. >> and current will let me say anything. >> only on current tv.
4:38 pm
4:39 pm
4:40 pm
>> obama-care, more than a trillion in new costs hidden taxes, cutsish dr. shortages how can we survive? >> cenk: that's a ridiculous commercial running basically 24/7 saying oh, my god obama-care. pay me a lot of money and i'll tell you how to survive. it has given employers an excuse
4:41 pm
to cut down on healthcare. here in guthrie oklahoma. >> they said that nobody was considered full time. everybody was considered part time. we would be cutting everybody's hours back to 28 hours or less due to obama-care. >> cenk: so they're saying sad day for you guys. it's all obama's fault that we're doing this. let's bring a gift guest sirita, gupta, great to have you with us. >> thanks so much. >> cenk: no problem, let me ask you what the employers are doing here. are you buying it? they're saying well because of the healthcare situation we have so much more money we have to pay. that's why we have to take it out on the workers? >> you know, first of all i'm not surprised this is the way inters are respondingemployers are responding. i think they're using the
4:42 pm
affordable care act as an excuse to go after the employment they've long time sought after low pay no benefits, shifting the burden of costs on the workers themselves. i don't buy it. i think ultimately what they're saying is that businesses can only succeed if they pay low wages and provide absolutely no benefits. i think it really begs a question are we okay with that? are we okay with watching our own standard of living fall, our friends and neighbors and family's standard of living fall like that. >> cenk: what can we do about it? if we say, for example like in this case, you work a 30 hour week you'll have to get health care. they say, oh yeah, i'll cut the hours down to 28 hours. well, what do you do? >> well, that's what is so unconscionable about the
4:43 pm
situation, especially when we look at the example of the clip that you just shared in the fast food industry. here is a sector of the economy one of the lowest paid sectors has one of the lowest unionization rates. these workers, these employees have absolutely little protection when they stand up to really negotiate what their employers do. and on top of it what is unconscionable is the implication of consumers. i don't want to go where the workers can't go to the doctor if they need it. i think what we're going to end up seeing is more of what we saw
4:44 pm
in november and december where workers in industries like walmart are standing up and saying no more to this, and forcing employers to respond. >> cenk: sarita i want to show you one clip from fox news channel. they showed this clip from taco bell. >> we have to find a way around this craziness. here we have a young woman who wants to work and wants to work quite hard. do we want to push people like this on government assistance? is that what the goal is? she's willing to work her ass off, it's crazy. >> cenk: sarita, fox news is just trying to protect the workers. how do you respond to that? >> well, i just have to say the workers--i mean this, is the reality of workers today. the experience of the average person today. they are having to take multiple jobs on just to make ends meet. just to make ends meet. it is absolutely unconscionable. we have to do something about this. it is not okay for us to give a pass to corporations, to companies, to small businesses and say it's okay for you to
4:45 pm
continue to shift the burden of costs on to workers and squeeze them in it way. you know, we have to take a stand as a nation to say enough is enough, stop. the business model that--are we okay with this business model being the dominant model in our nation? i say no. more of us need to say no to it. >> cenk: sarita gupta with jobs with justice. we appreciate it. >> thank you. great to be here. >> cenk: now we turn to jacki schechner. you're a healthcare expert. you worked on this, and you're part of the outside groups that got the law passed in the first place. is it true that my god obama care is started, and we have to cut benefits. >> sarita is not buying it, and she shouldn't be. it's totally baloney. you have more than 150 employees, you have a shared responsibility for those
4:46 pm
employees to go out on the exchange to buy insurance on their own. an it doesn't kick in until until 2014. >> cenk: that's huge. it hasn't even started. >> the fact that they're saying they have to cut people down to part time due to expenses of the affordable care act is ridiculous. >> cenk: are they doing this because they didn't want to pay for healthcare in the first place? >> i think sarita is right. there is an employment incentive to cut back hours keep wages low and there is a larger influence at play here that has nothing to do with the affordable care act. no one is finding out that this doesn't start until 2014. it's absurd. >> cenk: these poor companies. they're in trouble. because of the affordable care act they're almost out of business. >> here's what we need to mention. there are companies who say
4:47 pm
their premiums are going up now because the insurance companies are telling them that the premiums have to go up because of the affordable care act. there will be taxes and fees in 2014, and some of them are passing them on to the consumer now. they have made record profits. if you look at the profits in 2011, the top five health health sures turned a $12.5 billion. maybe you think they're losing money. look at 2010. they turned a $11.7 billion. and so they're making money year after year after year. >> cenk: that's all under the obama administration. the evil corporate obama administration, and their profits went up each year. >> blame the insurance company. if you want to blame somebody, blame the insurance companies. they are the ones who are jacking up your rates. >> cenk: they're doing it before the heart of affordable care act has started yet.
4:48 pm
>> they're using it as an excuse. don't buy the propaganda. >> cenk: great work. thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. now when we come back, we've told you about climate change.. mississippi is at record low amounts, and then fires droughts disasters. we'll talk about it when we come back. >> flames devouring homes. smoke kangaroo hopping through a charred moonscape.

4:50 pm
4:51 pm
carl. >> well man, this is the last you'll see. >> the pictures coming out of australia are apocalyptic. flames devouring homes. blossoms of smoke. a lone kangaroo hopping through a charred moonscape. it's so hot that the government
4:52 pm
had to change it's forecast map adding new shades of purple for temperatures possibly hitting 130 degrees. >> cenk: and in fact next week they are scheduled to hit 120 degrees which is a record while we're setting records in terms of drought and how low the mississippi river and how that affects commerce. >> the months of drought brought national focus to the mississippi. companies fared the worse. now a few weeks into an emergency project. senator dick durban and newly seated along with the army corp of engineers. >> this river carries a major part of america's commerce. >> cenk: well, senator durbin is
4:53 pm
right. it tears carries $2.8 billion worth of business and now they're considering diverting the missouri river into the mississippi. that has a whole host of other problems. part of which we don't have a whole lot of fresh water. the blue sphere that you see here is the water in the world. the smaller one you see is all the fresh water in the world. then the tiny blue one near florida is all the fresh water that is available in the world. that's not a lot. that's a tiny amount. so that is a big problem if you start diverting fresh water into the mississippi just to help commerce. other thing we could do is fix the climate, it is a try. bob, thanks for joining us, we appreciate it. how dangerous is it if we divert
4:54 pm
the water from the missouri into the mississippi. >> i don't think the missouri river diversion is a very good idea at all. the mid continent has been in a severe drought and if that continues we'll need that water for other purposes next year. >> cenk: perhaps drinking. how about the drought and the mississippi river. >> well, we've had a severe drought this last year, and there are a lot of levels in the river surprise people because the prior four years we had such a high precipitation so people don't expect this. but the we've had lower levels than now as late as 2003. >> cenk: they're digging keeper to make the river deeper. i'm not sure if that works if you don't have enough water. what is the best solution for

this? >> our best solution is not relying on oversized boats on sections of river that are too small to to accommodate them. we need to lower the draft and length of these huge vessels on rivers that are too small. >> cenk: it's more important to preserve the fresh water in the missouri for things we desperately need. and if it means that the transportation costs a little more in the mississippi whether it's less loads on the ships or going rail, you would rather pay that price. but businesses often don't work that way. they're not interested in the water reserve you have in missouri. who do you think will win this battle? >> i don't know who is going to win, but as with a lot of environmental problems we're not going to solve anything until we get proper pricing and commodities. that includes water. out west water is worth hundreds

of thousands of dollars per acre. we don't value things in the east so much, and perhaps we should. >> cenk: bob criss, thank you. >> thanks. >> cenk: we'll have the final word for the weekend. i don't want you to miss that. um, hello. these ugly stains are ruining my good looks and style. and good luck using that cleaner. excuse me, miss ? he's right.

those are tough hard water stains, and that cleaner's not gonna cut it. truth is, 85% of us have hard water and many don't even know it. you need lime-a-way. lime-a-way is specially formulated to conquer hard water stains. it's 4 times more effective at removing lime scale than the leading bathroom cleaner. see the lime-a-way difference or your money back. cook what you love and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from busser to waiter to chef before opening a restaurant specializing in fish and game from the great northwest. he'll start investing early, he'll find some good people to help guide him, and he'll set money aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense.
